Perfect place to enjoy Traverse City!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved the accommodations at this beautiful condo. The owners didn't spare any expense and their attention to detail was impeccable. Every room was tastefully decorated and the property is right on the water for some awesome views. The beds were so plush and felt so secure in this gem of a condo. Owners were more than accomodating. Enjoyed Traverse City to the fullest and would definitely make this my go to home away from home!

Very Disappointed - not worth the money !!

  • 1 of 5

1/2 the lights don't work in the condo, there is only one TV (the one in master bedroom is disconnected and on the closet floor), some of the blinds are broken, very few amenities (soap, shampoo in showers, toilet paper), and dirt /hair in bathroom drawers. Very difficult getting a hold of someone, and when we did hear from the (resident Mgr) she said "sorry - we know the cleaning people do a bad job, and we're getting a new service". Well that's wonderful - but does nothing for us this week.

Very disappointed - and not worth the hefty price tag for the week.

Owner's Response: There were three downlight that burned out and were replaced within two days of notification . We have one television in the living room and none in the bedrooms. We do not advertise tv's in the bedrooms. There is ample soap, paper towels, toilet paper, etc. stocked in the unit. Jim Barnas is the manager and and has his cell phone on always. Our cleaning company has been cleaning the unit for seven years with no complaints.
